It seems the stoops are to stand in all 18 constituencies
It would seem they have cowered away from the idea of allowing Deeney a free run and could you blame them?
Deeney, even with sdlp votes, doesn't have a chance against Pat Doherty and in my opinion the sdlp candidate in West Tyrone will be a sitting duck.
What is the bet that Deeney will no longer be there come the next assembly election, if there even is one?
Poor Durkan, he's under intense pressure with Alistair biting at his heels and with a party containing people like Hanna, Kelly and Attwood.
Sure it's enough to drive you to drink.
Don't worry Mark after May 5th you should be in line for a nice long rest.
